Antonio's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“Travel China Guide is truly an amazing tour company.
During the booking process for a private tour for my family of 5 our agent could not have been phenomenal. She answered all communications quickly with a thorough response. The drivers and tour guides in Beijing (Evelyn) and Shanghai (Alexander) were both great. They were on time and greeted us with a warm smile daily. Their knowledge and warm personalities made touring China with 3 kids (ages 14,11 & 9) relaxing. They even assisted in fixing my phone when I dropped it severely cracking the screen.
If you are thinking of visiting China this is the tour company to choose.”

Jill's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“Travel China was very efficient. Our consultant, Kelly Wang, tailor made our tour for us and it was exactly what we wanted. All the guides did a very good job - they all met us in time, took us to the sites, and were knowledgeable and friendly. The drivers were very good to.

Kelly helped with all my queries on how to get a visa, what to tip and where to meet the guides.

I would recommend Travel China Guide.”

Graham's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“Overall, the tour was very well organized from our initial contact with Linda, our consultant. Linda was flexible and worked with us on our requirements. All the pick-ups, drop-offs and tours were on time. The vehicles were spotless, and the drivers were courteous. Our guides in Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghai were knowledgeable and friendly.
Barry, our guide in Beijing needs a special mention, as he was excellent!

We would totally recommend booking with Travel China Guide, it was really a fantastic trip.”
